Party pooper

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He came across this very colourful field on one of his permitted walks.  He can’t say what it is that the farmer is growing. My day started with a Zoom visit to Australia. My sister Susan’s friend Stephen has contributed guest pictures to the blog and asContinue reading “Party pooper”

Gentle therapy

Today’s guest picture comes from our friends Mike and Alison.  They are on holiday on the shore of Loch Feochan in Argyll and this is the view from their front window.  They have chosen a good week for their trip. We had a day of perfect weather here too, although there was still some winterContinue reading “Gentle therapy”

The weather gods never get bored of their little joke

Today’s guest picture comes from Irving, a keen fisherman.  Knowing that we have not got much water in our rivers at the moment, he sent me this view of the Einag Falls. They are on a tributary of the river Oykel in the Highlands where he was fishing three weeks ago.  He adds that heContinue reading “The weather gods never get bored of their little joke”

A garden visit

Today’s guest picture shows one of our son Tony’s dogs enjoying the sunshine on the East Wemyss Riviera.  It’s lip-smackingly good there. Our spell of dry and sunny weather started its drift to normality today as the temperature dropped a degree or two and the sun became rather shy as the day went on, butContinue reading “A garden visit”

More blooming bluebells

Today’s guest picture is a second from Bruce’s recent visit to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway.  I make no apologies, I love steam engines.  This one was built in 1896 and is a lot older than me. We had yet another lovely day here with more wall to wall sunshine and no call for a jumperContinue reading “More blooming bluebells”

At last a tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who is back from Wales.  She found herself looking across the Thames and reflecting on how enormous the new buildings in London are when compared to the Tower of London which can be seen cowering on the extreme right of her shot. We had another dry dayContinue reading “At last a tootle”

On the rack

Today’s guest picture comes from camera club member Simon.  He suggested the theme for tonight’s meeting and then found that he couldn’t come.  He sent me this contribution  in lieu.  Prizes (token) for telling me where he was. Yet another grey and windy day welcomed us when we woke.  Everybody I met had the sameContinue reading “On the rack”

Hard work

Today’s guest picture comes from Mrs Tootlepedal and shows two fragments of the steampunk embroidery that she enjoyed so much yesterday.  The artist is Jan Johnson. We had the first genuinely warm and sunny day of the year and it was ideal for gardening and cycling so it was unfortunate that it coincided with ourContinue reading “Hard work”

Topsy turvey

In keeping with today’s theme, today’s picture of an ibis comes from down under.  My brother sent it to me from a stopover in Brisbane on his way back to the UK from NZ. Nothing went as it should today and yet everything was all right today.  You don’t get many days like that. IContinue reading “Topsy turvey”
